I have only driven LA to SF...and now I cant decide where to stop going the other direction!!
We leave SF early morning Dec 26 and can stop somewhere that night and stop somewhere else on the 27 and arrive in LA on the 28th. I would like to see Hearst Castle, but do not need to go to Monterey - have done that. We are with are 2 kids, aged 10 and 12. We have also stayed in Cambria and Santa Barbara
Drive SF to somewhere in Julia Pfeiffer Park (hotel/lodge B+B - any recos?)
Day 2 - elephant seals, Hearst Castle over night in San Luis Obispo
Day 3 - on to LA
I know it seems silly that I can't decide when I have driven the coast before, but its been a few years and I want to maximize Big Sur! Any suggestions appreciated,
